Week In Review:
Each day USMWF extensively researches articles regarding work
incidents, illnesses and diseases to share with you recognizing those we
have lost. But, also to gain attention to such losses to prevent
similar incidents, illnesses and diseases from occurring.
USMWF knows and understand that these articles represent only a few of the 14 workers lost each day due to a work related incident in the United States as not every incident is recognized by the local media.
We never forget those that went to work and never came home to their families and we hope that you remember them and their stories.
Please check out USMWF's Facebook page also for daily post of articles regarding work related incidents, illnesses and diseases.
